2007 Casanova Di Neri Brunello Di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova
This is not the perfect 100-point 2006, but damn close. Loads of black cherries and spices on the nose. Full-bodied, with a beautiful core of fruit. Long and gorgeous finish. This is so long and beautiful to taste. Lasts for minutes. Try after 2015.

The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova saturates the palate with masses of super-ripe dark fruit, tar, licorice and new leather. The Tenuta Nuova is an especially full-bodied, seamless Sangiovese deeply influenced by the Mediterranean climate of this warm site in the south of Montalcino. Layers of fruit build to an effortless, resonant finish laced with considerable aromatic nuance. This is another terrific showing from Giacomo Neri and his talented team. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2027. Rated 95+

--The Wine Advocate
Brunello Tenuta Nuova began as both a passionate and scientific project, for a wine which only Casanova di Neri can offer. It comes from a mass clone of Sangiovese Cerretalto on a piece of land south of Montalcino, where it acquires “Mediterranean” scents, great finesse and tannic structure. It matures in small oak barrels for 30 months and in the bottle for 18 months. The first year of production was 1993.
Serving temperature: 16-18°C; open 2-3 hours before serving and, if possible, pour immediately into a decanter, gently and delicately.
Serving suggestions: braised meats and furry game.
